Mater Specialist Quick Find

Mater Children's Private Brisbane

Back in 1998 when Mater Children’s Private Hospital first opened its doors, it was Australia’s first private hospital for children. Since that time, Mater has provided exceptional care for thousands of children and their families through a team of exceptional staff and outstanding doctors.

Today, Mater Children’s Private Brisbane continues to provide Queensland families with access to leading doctors, nurses and care providers. Our new look stand-alone facility provides paediatric healthcare services for children requiring specialist medical care and surgical intervention and is fully supported by

Designed for children and families

Mater Children’s Private Brisbane provides a range of specialised services from the one convenient location.  The former Mater Children’s Hospital building has recently undergone a complete transformation including a name change to Salmon Building, in memory of Mother Alban Salmon.

The majority of the patient care rooms are large single rooms and all include an ensuite and a day bed for a parent or carer to stay overnight. Each room has a telephone, television, security safe and mini-fridge. We also provide sibling (double) rooms, with the ensuite facility adjacent to the room.

Being stuck in a bed all day can get very boring, which is why Mater Children’s Private Brisbane has dedicated indoor and outdoor play areas for children to enjoy. 

We understand that having a child in hospital is a stressful time for a parent. While providing compassionate care to the children is our number one priority, we care about parent and carer needs too.  Our parent’s lounge provides a space for a coffee, to read a magazine, or talk with one of our volunteers and other parents.
